they could be moved on guns. you wrote in the "huffington post," advocating reducing defense spending so you can spend more money and invest in the united states. the question is in the negotiations in congress over the spending do you see that happening? >> we've got to make it happen. again, it's got to be the voice of the american people that will make it happen. people don't realize that 60% of our discretionary money go to the defense. wewe need and want a strong defense, with you but quite frankly out dateed cold war-era weapons can be taken off the table. there are many, many ways we can save money with defense in our pentagon budget, and never even touch anything that would affect our troops and their benefits and their families or national defense. nothing is off of the table and we have to under that defense can't be off of the table. we have to keep defense on the table as part of the negotiations as we move forward. i cannot accept a plan that's going to cut domestic spending by 8%. but i can look at a plan that looks at waste fraud and abuse cuts in the pentagon that will create

category that include the most popular guns used for self-defense, competition, and hunting. when president obama promises that no one's talking about taking away your hunting rifle or your self-defense handgun, it matters that gun control activists may, in fact, be talking about taking away your hunting rifle or your self-defense handgun, whether they know it or not. so let's forgo the arbitrary, ambiguous, fearmongering terms and get real specific about what we actually mean by gun control. it may be politically effective to rail against rapid fire, high capacity, assault weapons. doesn't actually mean anything. so if we're serious, we should at least start by getting the terms right. okay. that does it for "the cycle." martin, it's all yours. >> just a quick question. how many rounds did jared loughner fire off before he was tackled? >> what's your point? >> how many rounds had he fired off? >> i'm not sure. i don't remember. >> 31. >> okay. >> he was actually tackled because he was reloading. >> we should be trying to stop crazy people and criminals, martin, from shooting one person, no

disingenuous, and i'm being polite. if anybody was listening to the defense appropriation bill at the end of last year, just before they let us go over the fiscal cliff, republicans added $20 billion more than what the president asked for for the defense appropriation bill. this is the 20% there are going to have to cut during sequestration. now the defense department, if you keep the continuing resolution versus making a budget, they will get $680 billion this year. $20 billion more than what they ask for. yet they cannot pass a sandy bill. america, wake up. republicans that are in charge, and i guess you ququality party, they're just out to take our money. the poor and disenfranchised, they just laugh and say get a job, and they will not give you a job. host: on twitter -- in michigan on the independent line is terry. caller: good morning and thank you for taking my call and for having a program. i just want to say that i do think, from the perspective of spending, there has been a lot of conversation on the bell avenue side and the president did not get what he wanted -- on the revenue
. >> congress authorizes spending. they order me to spend. they tell me you need to fund our defense department, at such and such a level. you need to send out social security checks. you need to make sure that you are paying to care for our veterans. they lay all of this out for me. and because they have the spending power. and so i am required by law to go ahead and pay these bills. separately, they also have to authorize the raising of the debt ceiling in order to make sure that those bills are paid. and so what congress can't do is tell me to spend x, and then say but we're not going to give you the authority to go ahead and pay the bills. >> the economist made a laundry list of what would happen if congressional republicans refused to raise the debt limit. failure to raise the debt ceiling would force immediate spending cuts equal for 6% of gdp. not only would that threaten to send the economy back into recession, it would also deprive many of money needed to meet their own obligations, setting off a chain reaction of defaults that could incite investors to dump their holdings, driving up

the debates of wartime with the voices we lift in defense of our most enduring ideas. >> the president used his speech as a kind of a call to action. from climate change to the tax code, he promised reforms. >> our interests compel us to act on those who long for freedom. >> every word was meant to reinforce a progressive agenda. >> our agenda is not clear unless everybody is treated equally under the law. >> the theme of racial and sexual equality was front and center, i think a lot of the second term will be devoted to a lot of other things. >> the president takes one last look noting he will not ever see this again. he will not be the focus of another 9000-person parade. he could barely stop himself from dancing until he got the chance to, for he begins what is expected to be a fierce fight with congress if he hopes to make any additions to his legacy. companybia's state oil is planning rebels for an explosion of a pipeline. it cost a small spill -- it caused a small sill. pill. a truce was declared. at least 60,000 people have been killed in the past six years. many police officers have
you identify problems, the first line of defense needs to be regulatory and supervisory authorities. not only the fed, but other organizations like the occ and fdic have as well. you can address these problems using regulatory and supervisory authorities. there is a lot of disagreement about what role monetary policy plays in creating acid bubbles. it is not a settled issue. there's some people -- asset bubbles. it is not a settled issue. we need to be open-minded about it and pay attention to what is happening. the federal reserve was created about 100 years ago. 1913 was the law. not to do monitor policy, but to address financial panics -- monetary policy, but to address financial panics. it is a difficult task. going forward, the fed needs to think about financial stability and monetary economic stability as being the two key pillars of what the central bank tries to do. we will be using our regulatory, supervisory powers. if necessary, we will address monetary policy as well. i do not think that is the first line of defense. >> this question comes from twitter. since the fed dec
the great council, criminal defense working side by side, then having them available to counsel you and for the c-span viewers who may not know why if you could elaborate and explain, as i've been able to understand it there were incentives for those that entered the job corps to be assigned prosecutors but they were to be stationed elsewhere and wasn't quite the rewards of a track that ended with flat officer for the senior judge and now you created that and it seems to me that both victim and the accused with falsely or rightly we want to have a system that convict someone on a fair manner that seems to me to be maybe the most important performance of the past few years, and my vision of what it takes to learn at a great larger side and you are a great lawyer and we may have been on the opposite side of an important case at one point, but cal -- what is the early result, and the other, how much do you think that will tell, can help, and what kind of patients do we need before we can see the effect of that solution? stat i appreciate your question and frankly you have done as good
we heard from the president. >> reporter: well, it was a defense of the political theory, awaited the u.s. should be governed and should govern itself. i would almost characterize it as something along the lines of a response to what we heard from president reagan in 1981 when he said government is not the solution to our problems, it is the problem. president obama making the case that the government is not necessarily our problem. together we could do great things. together we could take care of the elderly. together we can create a health care system for those who may not be able to afford it. very much discussing ways about how there should be some in society you don't have all or should not be some in society you have all at the expense of all others. he made and not to climate change, something that he had not necessarily highlighted or focused on in his first demonstration. moving forward in tackling debt and deficits, he did talk about tax reform. talk about slowing the growth of these expenses, but still no change in his governing philosophy, if not impassioned defense of
of terrific defense. the solving of this problem -- let me see if i can get this clear for you. this is peter, right? what i was pointing out is that in california we have a responsibility to make sure that every weapon is transferred. i was a firearms license dealer for 25 years so i know what i am talking about. the result of that is -- you brought up the gun show loophole, which is important. people in other states can go and buy weapons in virginia, but it in the back of their car and take it across to pennsylvania. i was watching c-span earlier this morning. the mayor of philadelphia said they have guns were the criminals are renting guns they have bought in virginia. it is very important which has not been addressed, if you are going to register firearms, it has to be across the board. that means for people who are police officers, people who are bureaucrats, people who are elected officials -- anyone. you cannot have a two tiered system where half of the people that are just civilians have to abide by the laws and everybody else does not. one of the most important factors that each fir
on revenues. we can deal with the defense budget. but when you say whether we pay now or later but you're not talking about a delay. i went to public schools in brooklyn but now or later means delay. >> look at it this way. the amendment today, it would have cut defense something you and i have talked about before. 157 republicans voted for that. five democrats also voted for my amendment today. if the amendment had passed, the money would have gone to new york and new jersey just as quickly. again, this was not a debate about who gets the money, how much money it was. it was a debate how we're going to pay for it. make one thing clear. this is all borrowed money. this is not budgeted this year. we are going to borrow every penny we send to the northeast. i wanted to have the discussion of whether or not this was important enough to find some savings some place. give me something that we are willing to give up as a country. and if it's a national park in my state. show me something we're willing to give up as a country and share that sacrifice so these folks in the northeast get the ai
have all gone to white men, defense, treasury, state. they're all going to white men. so is this -- is he going to put women in other positions? and what's it going to take to get a woman in one of those big power spots? >> well, i think we're going to have to look at the picture as a whole when the president is done. having served this president, knowing the women who have served him who are still there today, these are extremely influential, powerful women with a strong voice with regard to what's going on on a day-to-day basis. but we can't make a decision and a determination until the full picture comes to be. and i would also say that when you look at the issues, homeland security, janet napolitano, making sure health care reform is implemented. kathleen sebelius. the list goes on. there are very, very smart, very influential women already in his cabinet and i know are going to be there. >> the second term is when that "l" word, legacy, comes into play. you're a veteran of this white house and also a veteran of working in the capitol behind us for senator kennedy and
on the waterfront and next to the sugar factory. crews caught this fire defensively from the shoreline spraying water on it from the shore and eventually got the boat in there to find out. a battalion chief i talked to said the fire appears suspicious for a number of reasons. >> there's nobody living on the pier. there are no sources of electricity or other obvious sources of ignition. >> reporter: on top of that, there was also another fire at this same pier two years ago, according to firefighters. i asked the battalion chief this morning if transients may have been camping out inside this structure on the pier this morning. he said that's certainly a possibility that will be looked into it as arson investigators move in and try to figure out exactly what sparked this fire this morning. we bring you out here live. fire are yous -- crews are still putting water on some of the hot spots on the pier that caught fire. i also want to mention this did have an impact on the amtrak and southern train line. trains were stopped but they are now moving again. alex savidge, ktvu channel 2 news. >>> 7:03.
to settle in, set up their defenses and have to make demands. things they clearly want. they want prisoners to be released and some lines of communication will be established, and the -- the authorities will -- ideally will look at communication as a weapon to manipulate them and arrange an outcome, either there is an assault or get everybody released. >> kidnappings, hostage taking, not that unusual, especially massive international companies, and often the companies will pay out money to the kidnappers, but would political motivation, seems like it would be less likely. do you think that's true? >> some of the motivation will be a cover. the terrorists here are really bandits. a kidnapping industry thriving in this part of the world, and used to making money. this is a business for them. an opportunity to make a lot more money. make noise about political demands in the hopes that money will be offered to save the people and secondarily the facility. they will try to settle this for money. >> negotiations could involve money. what about a rescue attempt. how likely is it that that is being

you identify problems, you can use, the first line of defense needs to be regulatory and supervisory qualities. not only the fat, but other organizations -- said -- not only the fed, but other organizations. as i was saying earlier, there is a lot of disagreement about what role monetary policy plays in creating asset bubbles. it is not a settled issue. some people think it is an important source, others think it is not. we need to be open-minded about it and pay close attention to what is happening to the extent that we can identify problems. we need to address that. the federal reserve was created in -- about 100 years ago now. 1913 was the law. not to do monetary policy, but to address financial panic. and that is what we did in 2008 and 2009. it is a difficult task. going forward, the fed needs to think about financial stability. we will be working very hard on's -- on financial stability. we will try to strengthen the financial system. if necessary, we will adjust monetary policy. i do not think that is the first line of defense. >> this question comes from twitter. as the decl

the redundancies, the way government just wastes money every single day. in the department of defense maybe they have personal a sign systems, one for officers, another one for enlisted personnel in the third to reservists. that would seem to make no sense. consolidate, save money for taxpayers are putting up knew bill. it just makes no sense. gerri: are not only right, but i give you one that shouldn't urea even more. i went on active duty as an enlisted man in 1970 and left active duty as an officer in 1980. i had two sets of records, sometimes three at all times. my active duty records, the reserve in st. louis had another set the burned, and the veterans administration maintain another set. particularly when you're talking about returning veterans who have injuries, having multiple medical records that are not computerized is also a terrible, and we have been working on it since i left active duty in 1980. clearly if we keep throwing money we will get there. gerri: what are we going to do jack because this -- i mean, this is ridiculous. cobalt, are you kidding me? >> our draft legislati
's homes for self-defense. we all know that there are an overwhelming number of handgun security more than 10 rounds at a time. so to say that people don't have the right to have those guns in their homes for self-defense in my opinion could be a constitutional violation of the second amendment. >> is interesting. we brought him in because we thought that what you wrote in "the wall street journal", getting rid of guns in the district of columbia. and this was a very tough measure to try to reduce violence. what happened? >> unfortunately, gun violence actually increased. it was counterintuitive and tragic and unfortunate. but what we saw is that it embolden criminals because they realize that people could not defend themselves. all that gun bans have done is increase violent crimes and endangers civil liberties and i has created an undue burden upon law enforcement could start them from controlling and violent crimes in progress. they just don't work. >> the sullivan law basically requires that you have concealed weapons but you have to permit for that and the gun violence in new york sta
at every part of the budget. you have to look at defense spending. you have to clearly focused on health care costs, which go faster than the economy. we have to fix our social security system, which makes promises bigger than what we can pay out on the road. we have to raise revenues. we started down the path, but we haven't looked had to do about overhauling tax system, which would you want to raise revenue, you could do in could do in the way bad for the economy hallway discussion helps increase competitiveness and modernizes our tax system. so we know what the answers are. were going to fight it the specifics, but we don't know at what point the political system is going to be willing to make all those traces, which are difficult compromise on both sides and put this issue to rest so we can go back to all the other things were going to fight about. the fact you can sue a policy solutions are more passed the tennis doesn't matter, but everybody recognized the threat that she can't possibly imagine a real growth, and without a sense of stability from knowing what changes obesity you ca
with the defense sec care, who is in italy, watching every move. >> reporter: secretary panetta says the u.s. will take all necessary steps to deal with this crisis. u.s. officials believing that as many as three americans are now being held but caution the numbers are fluid. it all began when 20 armed islamic militants, believed to be affiliated with al qaeda, approached a group of oil workers. the attackers were reportedly heavily armed, driving in three unmarked vehicles. the oil workers were on a bus, headed to a nearby airport. there was a fight. security forces for the workers battled back. when the smoke cleared, at least one foreign worker was dead. others wounded. the terrorists then headed to the compound where the gas refinery workers live. while it is unclear how many foreign workers they seized, sources say it could be as many as 15 to 20. along with the americans, there are british, norwegian, french, and japanese workers, too. the attackers claim this is retaliation for the french-led invasion in the african nation of mali. the french are trying to stop an al qaeda-linked gr
as secretary of state, chuck hagel as secretary of defense. consideration of our military strategy, our military spending, how we project american power as we complete a winding down of the war in afghanistan. it is really going to be the end of a post-9/11 period in national security policy, with the policy going for it from there still unsettled. guest: the will still be a focus on the issues of national security, what just happened in algeria, the issue of al qaeda not being as weak a forceful as president obama campaign on. i think republicans will point that out. if we lost american lives again last week. so what are we doing to keep al qaeda at bay? that will be part of the discussion during the confirmation hearings and certainly with mrs. clinton's appearance tomorrow. host: on the issue of foreign policy, what will be president obama's legacy? where will the focus in his second term? guest: looking back over the first term, he did wind down the war in iraq. he's in the process now of winding down the war in afghanistan. more broadly, i think this whole light footprint strategy,
. there is leon panetta, defense secretary, walking in right now. so -- i -- i -- there's -- more members of the cabinet coming in. this is the motorcade that is carrying the president, first lady, vice president, and second lady, and others up pennsylvania avenue towards the capitol. h.w. brand is the presidential historian, the author, who is helping us better appreciate the enormity of this historical moment that we are watching. they are getting closer and closer. that's quit a long motorcade. they got. i guess the republican and democratic leadership is in that motorcade as well. how significant is it that -- and -- there you see janet nap tan oh secretary of homeland security walking in with other members of the cabinet -- how significant is it the president invited the congressional leadership for coffee after coming back from church before heading up to capitol hill? >> it seems a clear indication he realizes if anything is going to be done in the second term, it will have to be done on a bipartisan basis. presidents in their inaugural addresses always speak in bipartisan fashion.
and democratic defense is now just too, it's become wrapped around the axle of polarization, of ideological debates. i think the one thing we can take away from this whole situation is that bullies win. as much as we believe -- i mean, chavez is nothing more than -- [speaking spanish] i mean, he just can, basically, call people out and humiliate them and bash them, and it does manage to intimidate governments and leaders and multilateral institutions. and i think that's the problem. and i think, you know, we all fear what could happen, but, you know, even if -- i'm not, i don't think the multilateral community or the united states or anyone should have called what happened -- [inaudible] but the fact that no one actually dared any questions about the levels of polarization in venezuela, what this meant for respect for the letter, if not certainly the spirit of the constitution, on what this meant for the potential for conflict, um, was i think very sad. and worse, this is a government that is very good -- [audio difficulty] but in terms of consistently named the supreme court violating its
from rush limbaugh. he has taken a very strange twist in his defense of gun enthusiasts. he's now claiming that they are the martin luther kings in this civil rights fight. >> if a lot of african-americans back in the '60s had guns and the legal right to use them for self-defense, do you think they would have needed selma? if john lewis had had a gun, would he have been beat upside the head on the bridge? >> i have to tell you -- >> karen, listen, this is disgusting. first of all, it's not original -- >> rush is now -- it sounds like he's trying to be a member of the black panthers. this is ridiculous. >> well, there's that irony as well. but it's not original. he's taking it from the comments from the other right wing nut job who was talking about if slaves had guns. first of all, there are plenty of shotgun owners during the civil rights era, but to reduce john lewis' service to this country and the civil rights movement and the black experience and the overall american experience in this country to him getting beat upside the head is disgusting and offensive. this is a man who
a lower 18% growth rate. in defense of starbucks, they have a better brand not to mention, indeed, better coffee. you've got two ways to win, it could rally up to $14, i think that could be a conservative number or the stock could go to $16.24, i know, pretty precise, on a potential takeover bid. they seem to be addicted to coffee-related acquisitions as i'm addicted to coffee itself. it is at a 52-week high. and i'm willing to endorse buying the stock on a pullback. wait for some market -- believe me, it does happen, knock the stock down and then make your move. here's the bottom line, krispy kreme as this donutamid clearly shows is back. and it's giving you two ways to win. either the company gets taken ore or stays independent and grows like a weed. the only thing that gives me pause is the gigantic move in the share price. i'm begging, be patient, wait for a pullback and please use limit orders if you're going to buy kkd. let's go to bob in my home state of new jersey. bob? >> caller: boo-yah to ya, jim. >> how do you like that burger? cheese on it, onion, pickle, lettuce, that's from
